I would like to say that Texas State University should be involved in this as well. Looking at information, I found out that Texas State is more selective than UTEP or UTSA. It even has more endownment money than North Texas. They are also the only one not on the list that is a flagship University.

That shoulder to shoulder reference sounds like it was borrowed from Sen. Hillary Clinton . It was used today by Associated Press and in USA TODAY's story about US/ Mexico's fight against the drug cartels. She was in Monterrey, Mex. saying the US will stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight against the cartels. Great reference but it goes to show press writers tend to borrow others quotes without giving due credit.
